VICE Season Two Episode 9 Review

VICE Season Two Episode 9 Review

Overview: More than 200 million gallons of oil surged into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.  To combat the worst environmental disaster in American history, BP and the Coast Guard dumped nearly 2 million gallons of a chemical dispersant called Corexit into the Gulf. But instead of helping clean up the spill, Corexit made things worse. The seafood industry is decimated, and clean-up workers have developed debilitating respiratory and central nervous-system problems, along with skin rashes. Scientific studies have proven that Corexit exposure kills cells in the human airway, and makes oil 52 times more toxic to the environment. Four years later,...

Game of Thrones 4.07 Review – Mockingbird

Game of Thrones 4.07 Review – Mockingbird

Directed by: Alik Sakharov Written by: David Benioff & D. B. Weiss I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in the thought process that I would watch an entire show dedicated specifically to Tyrion Lannister. The amount of fondness I have for his character knows no bounds and seems to only further grow each passing week with Peter Dinklage’s superb acting skills. I was thrilled by the amount of screen time he got this episode and all of the intense jail cell scenes that it resulted in. The first of these was a bonding moment between him and Jaime. While my affection for the Kingslayer seemed to wane slightly during the rape scene a few...

TV’s most honored sports journalism series continues its 20th season with more enterprising features and reporting when the show’s 206th edition debuts on Tuesday, 05.20 at 10:00pm ET. Though HBOWatch does not consistently announce every installment of this show, which has been on HBO since 1995, we do like to take opportunity to remind readers every now and again that it is still on air and it is always has interesting sports topics to explore and discuss. Straight from an HBO Press Release here is a look at the upcoming episode: White Elephants. Brazil, which some call the spiritual home of soccer, hosts the 2014 World Cup next month....

The Knick with Clive Owen Gets Cinemax Premiere Date

More and more Cinemax is bringing premium quality series into your home and since HBO and Cinemax are normally bundled together we’re going to to make sure you know when and where you can watch these series as they arrive.

Movie Review: Fast and Furious 6

Movie Review: Fast and Furious 6

Quick Forward: I was supposed to review We’re the Millers but didn’t get a chance so here’s an abridged version: It sucks. The same mean spirited, obnoxious trite that clogs up movie theaters like a diet of cheeseburgers does to a heart. Sure there’s a laugh to be had here or there, but they are few and far between slogs of unlikeable, un-endearing characters who essentially exist so that Jason Sudeikis can point at them like a carnival sideshow and crack jokes at their expense. (Clears Throat) The Fast and the Furious series was never something intended to be understood as the final, lasting work of anyone involved. However events...

In the series, directed by Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl, the band taps into the musical heritage and cultural fabric of eight cities – Chicago,...

Latest Development from David Milch is Boss Tweed

Latest Development from David Milch is Boss Tweed

As of late we seem to have been going back and forth about what was next for two big producers for HBO. The showrunners in question are David Milch and David Simon. They both seemed to be struggling to get there next project up and running with the premium channel. Just what were they going to follow up with next? Well, we finally learned what Mr. Simon would take on. Remember this post about the MLK miniseries for Oprah? So, what about Mr. Milch; if not THE MONEY then what? Well, Vulture.com has helped us with a possible answer. The Vulture brand had a recent event called Vulture Festival where, among other things, they had a sit-down with...

Jessa in Trouble on the Next Season of GIRLS

Jessa in Trouble on the Next Season of GIRLS

It appears that Jemima Kirke did a no-no on the streets of New York City recently, but actually she is seen as her GIRLS character Jessa Johansson in this photo taken for The New York Daily News.  Apparently the image is a photo shot during a location rehearsal or during actual filming of a scene involving the troubled young lady.  It should be no surprise to followers of Hannah Horvath and friends that Jessa has a run-in with the law. Since the Miss has settled in NYC she’s been displaying less than desirable behavior with her short marriage, fake pregnancy, drug issues and all. In fact, the last time we saw her at the end of last...

Xbox Owners Can Now Use HBO Go Without Gold Subscription

Xbox Owners Can Now Use HBO Go Without Gold Subscription

In the past many Xbox users have complained about having to pay not only Netflix and HBO but Microsoft as well to access their respective streaming media apps through the video game console. An Xbox Live Gold Membership (about 50 bucks per year) was required to even download the apps needed to  utilize an Xbox as a typical home streaming device in the same way you’d do so for free with a Roku or Amazon Fire TV. All that changed this week when Microsoft announced that they were “Delivering More Choices” for fans along with a price drop for the console itself (to $399) saying: “…we’re bringing more value to...

HBO BOXING AFTER DARK Event Canceled

HBO BOXING AFTER DARK Event Canceled

It is rather sporadic we know, that is what happens when we don’t have a Sports Writer on staff, but we try to get occasional Boxing news to HBO BOXING fans from time to time. Here is what we got for you.  It seems an HBO BOXING AFTER DARK fight has been canceled. A bout between Mike Perez (20-0-1, 12 KOs) and Bryant Jennings was to take place and be seen on the show on 05.24.14. Mike Perez had suffered a shoulder injury during a sparring match that has forced him to back out. The fight was an important one as the winner would advance to WBC heavyweight competition. However, HBO has other boxing programs on the schedule for May. Coming up...

LAST WEEK TONIGHT Episode 3 – Old White Dicks & Climate Change Deniers

LAST WEEK TONIGHT Episode 3 – Old White Dicks & Climate Change Deniers

I wasn’t sure I was going to do this every week, but here I am with another LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JON OLIVER piece. The only reason I am posting this really is because of the comments I made in last week’s post. I had noted the censored images that appeared in the telecast and they were not just blurred imagery but black barred ones. My thought was like “Hey, doesn’t John Oliver realize yet that he is on HBO? Well lucky for us and Mr. Oliver in Episode Three, which debuted on 05.12, he did acknowledge and use to his advantage the fact that he was indeed on HBO. Did you see this? He was in the midst of talking about an election...

Update: TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2 Casting Rumors Start with Brad Pitt

Update: TRUE DETECTIVE Season 2 Casting Rumors Start with Brad Pitt

Update: Brad Pitt Takes on Second Season of  TRUE DETECTIVE?  We know, we know, we can go round and round on this topic, but go ahead and admit it, that this is fun! The rumor below has been out there for a while, but we can one-up it one better now. Here it is –  Brad Pitt is this close to signing on for Season Two of TRUE DETECTIVE and supposedly it is only a matter of scheduling it around his existing projects.  We discovered this news via The Daily Star, a UK website, which, for some reason has awesome intelligence over here to pick up on this news before anyone in the U. S. does.  Now make no mistake that Brad Pitt has been close...

HBO Documentary Films: THE DEAD MOTHERS’ CLUB

HBO Documentary Films: THE DEAD MOTHERS’ CLUB

Overview: THE (DEAD MOTHERS) CLUB tells the story of three women whose paths never cross, yet are bound by the shared experience of losing their mothers during adolescence, exploring each one’s sometimes-complex relationship with her mother.

George R.R Martin Types with One Finger

George R.R Martin Types with One Finger

To some of you this may be hilarious and to others: total sadness. George R.R Martin, author of the notoriously long A Song of Ice and Fire novels of which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based, has been hounded by fans who want what would be the sixth novel in the series sooner rather than later.  There have also been concerns that the series will catch up to the novels which is a big problem for some readers. Needless to say the lengthy, complex tomes have not been released quickly in the past. Fans have been waiting for the sixth novel, The Winds of Winter since 2011 with no firm release date on record as of today. This latest revelation...

A Few Tidbits on True Detective Season 2

A Few Tidbits on True Detective Season 2

Becoming a striking hit with an 11 million viewer fan-base in its first season, it’s pretty assuring that True Detective will be back for a second season. Identified as an anthologized series – the show will completely scrap its cast, characters, and storyline to start afresh in Season 2. And with a generic series title like ‘True Detective’, it gives show creator Nic Pizzolatto the chance to truly take the next season practically wherever and whenever he wants. We know fans have been clamoring for any and all news in relation to the second season. And the Brad Pitt rumors didn’t help!  While we don’t even have an...
